13.3 to DW Lawrence, straight to mid on! In the slot on middle and leg. Lawrence tries to go over mid on but perhaps gets too close to the ball, meaning that he does not get the requisite elevation in the end. Straight down mid on's throat, and Vince makes no mistake!. 100/4
4.5 to TF Rogers, cleans him up! Length delivery that pitches on off stump and decks back in sharply. Rogers, without really getting to the pitch of the ball, tries to go downtown. Massive gap between bat and pad, and that was more than enough for the ball to sneak through and hit the top of leg stump!. 40/1
5.4 to BJ Webster, Murphy gets Webster! Flattens it out and bowls it on a length on leg stump. Webster plays the trajectory rather than the length and does not really get forward. The ball skids through, takes a chunk of the inside edge and then pin-balls off the pads into the stumps. Two wickets in quick succession for the Sixers, and they are now threatening to tighten the screws!. 41/2
9.1 to GJ Maxwell, holes out to long off! Massive, massive wicket! Dangles the carrot wide outside off and Maxwell bites. Tries to carve it over long off but has to reach out too far. Does not get the timing he is after, and Abbott gobbles up the chance. A tiptoe along the fence, but he was always in control of the catch!. 77/3

TOTAL18.1 Ov (RR: 8.80)160/3
Fall of wickets: 1-29 (Josh Philippe, 3.5 ov), 2-128 (Daniel Hughes, 14.6 ov), 3-139 (James Vince, 16.2 ov) • DRS
3.5 to JR Philippe, knocks him over! Test match length on off, and like it has done all spell for Boland, this jags back in too. Philippe swings wildly and gets nowhere close to it. Hears the death rattle soon after, and Boland has the wicket the Stars would have wanted in the powerplay!. 29/1
16.2 to JM Vince, edged and taken! Vince departs but not before bringing the Sixers to the cusp of victory! Length outside off, and Vince thinks he can slam this over long off. Loses his shape for the first time, though, and tries to hit it too hard. All he does is nick it through to Handscomb. Is there a twist or two left in this tale?. 139/3
14.6 to DP Hughes, Hughes perishes! Another slower ball testing out the middle of the track. Hughes advances, looking to go flat-bat it over extra cover. Just does not have any pace to work with, though, and it skews straight up off the top edge. Paris settles himself at backward point and does the rest. Is it too little, too late from a Stars perspective, though?. 128/2
